Course content

The International Tourism Management programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and insights required to work in the diverse and dynamic tourism sector. Our stimulating and challenging programme takes a comprehensive approach to understanding tourism and its relationships with the economy, environment and society, within a broad business-based curriculum. The programme is delivered by a world-class team, passionate about their subject and highly respected for tourism research, consultancy and leading academic publications.

Our curriculum is international in scope and is suitable for UK and international students from a range of disciplines. The programme will help you to develop an ability to think critically about the relationship between tourism and management in different contexts and across a range of functions e.g. marketing, policy, business evaluation, strategy and applied research. Throughout our MSc, there is a strong emphasis on sustainability which positions people and the environment at the centre of tourism development and destinations.

Our dissertation module is the flagship of our programme, where you get to demonstrate and apply all the knowledge and skills you have acquired to study a contemporary tourism management issue of your choice. We encourage students to pick a dissertation subject that not only interests them, but is directly related to the kind of employment they are looking to secure following their graduation. Added to that, you can opt for our Work Based Learning module which allows students to work with a tourism business client in a consultancy role, or you may choose to travel abroad to take advantage of summer school opportunities in Europe and further afield.

By the end of the programme you will have the knowledge to understand and critically evaluate ideas at the cutting edge of tourism research alongside research skills that will enable you to predict and evaluate the changing business environment within a tourism context.

This programme is also available with a hospitality focused pathway, leading to a degree title of MSc International Tourism Management (Hospitality). This pathway is designed to address specific challenges in the hospitality industry, including services and facilities management. 

Graduates from the MSc International Tourism Management are well placed to find positions with international tourism and hospitality corporations and businesses as destination managers and marketers, consultants, hotel and event managers as well as tourism development, planning and impact assessment roles in the private and public sectors. In addition, this MSc provides a sound research training for those wanting to go on to further study at PhD level.
